IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY January 1, 2 and 3 "WILD HARVEST" —with Allan Ladd, Dorothy La mour, Robert Preston, Lloyd Nolan and Alan Jenkins Here is a story that is unusual and different. And for the first time on the screen we learn about the itinerant combine crews who start with their ma chines early in the summer in the southwest and move north ward to the Canadian border to harvest the wheat crop on huge ranches from the South to th< North. There is action galore with Ladd swinging a mean left Most everyone liked "Desert Fury", and if you were one that did then "WILD HARVEST" has those certain things in it that you will enjoy, too. rim Mimimim* unit SUNDAY - MONDAY January 4 and 5 "UNFAITHFUL" —with Anne Sheridan, Zachary Scott, Lew Ayers, and Eve Arden Here is a film that is as timely as tomorrow's newspaper, and just about as inflammable. Here is a story of a soldier's bride who is sincerely in love with her husband, but was unfaithful to him just once during his long absence overseas. Added to the wife's problems is her self defense slaying of the man of her indiscreations. Her subsequent trial for murder is one of the film's great highlights. The person doesn't live that can sit thru this film with a dry eye. There won't be much of a doubt bur what Miss Sheridan- will be a top ranking candidate for the Performance of the Year after the public has had a chance to see her great work in this tense and absorbing drama.
